We’ve been teased with some short trailers and the odd image for Jonathan Glazer’s new sci-fi thriller, Under the Skin, but now comes the full length trailer, and boy it does not disappoint.
Those who have seen the film are saying it is one of the best films of the year, with one reviewer even comparing Glazer to the great Stanley Kubrick! Check out the stunning, creepy and hypnotic full length trailer below.
UNDER THE SKIN, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Jonathan Glazer, will open across the UK on 14th March 2014.
Glazer’s third film following Sexy Beast and Birth, UNDER THE SKIN is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.
Critically acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals, with special praise going to Mica Levi’s score,UNDER THE SKIN was shot in London and extensively on location in Scotland.
Glazer and Walter Campbell wrote the screenplay whilst the film is produced by James Wilson (JW Films) and Nick Wechsler (Nick Wechsler Productions). The film is based on a novel by Michel Faber.
UNDER THE SKIN is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST, BIRTH) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
